Austin McDonald Breaks His Hip!! He is now Back in “Good Form”!!

Austin McDonald’s Daughter, Irene Speaks:  Hi again Stan:
Just a quick note. My Dad fell on July 4 and broke his hip. He had surgery and they made repairs. He was in University Hospital until the end of July, then was sent to Parkwood Hospital for rehab to learn to walk again.

Just got him out of hospital this week! Not a great summer for him or me!!!! He is happy to be back at his retirement home now and is racking up the miles again on his walker!
